Back to reality.......

and the reality is that in less than a month, I will be delivered from the bowels of employment hell!!!!!

You know, I have NEVER in my entire career been so happy to leave a situation before but I'm still thinking through what I'm going to do next. Maybe I should rephrase that, I'm still on the bioinformatics track school wise and I'm still studying for the MCAT< but what my next job is going to involve I have NO idea. In a lot of ways I feel like I'm having a Forest Gump moment, where my career right now is like a box of chocolates, because I have NO IDEA what I'm gonna get next. But having a lot of varied employment experiences, I'm fairly confident no change that, I'm supremely blessed in the sense that God has never, ever let me down in this regard. So I'm actually excited to see what happens next between now and my maritculation into med school.

As for the MCAT, I'm a little stuck right now studying acids and bases, but I'm sure that's in part because I'm just a tad bit distracted and didn;t study as much as I should have last week. But one thing that's clear in all I'm dealing with is that success in med school is going to be predicated on my ability to stay focused even in those rare moments when all hell is breaking out around me. And this is what I think my life right now is all about, staying focused, getting the job done, when I find myself surrounded by BS. I mean let's think about it for a minute, who would want to be operated on by a surgeon who is thinking about the argument she had with her husband the night before? I know I sure as hell wouldn't, but I often wonder how Docs manage to tune out personal stuff and get the job done, or maybe when mistakes are made they don't?

At any rate, I look forward to having a blessed, successful, productive week and hope you do too! :)
